“Great place to stay in Nags Head!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

We stayed here for 3 days in April. I picked this hotel based on recommendations I saw online. It did not disappoint. Very clean, close to attractions we wanted to go to .
Staff was very helpful and friendly. Complimentry breakfast was wonderful! This was our first trip to the Outer Banks but will not be our last! Had a great time.

Room Tip: Even if you don't pick Ocean Front you have a nice view of the ocean. We had a room on the thir...

This was my first time at the Outer Banks and stayed at Surf Side Hotel, because of the reviews I had read online. Unfortunately we had extremely bad weather with "gale force winds" so siteseeing was kept to inside a car, except for one day. We stayed for 3 nights and enjoyed the hotel very much, especially the nice selection of items at the morning breakfasts. Wasn't that thrilled with the afternoon wine snack, since we do not drink (need to offer something for those who do not drink wine). Never made it to the indoor pool in the building next door, but did stop in to see it on the day we were leaving, once the wind died down a bit. We were facing the outdoor pool and were also able to see the ocean on our left. Thank goodness we had that location because that wind storm, if facing directly at the ocean, would have kept us up all night!! Did manage to get out for a couple good seafood dinners in the area.....scallops were the best at all restrauants we went to. If I ever get back to the Outer Banks, NC again, I would definitely stay at this Hotel!!!

If you have kids, the NC Refuges over near the town of Manteo has excellent hands-on activity for the kids and several good short movies. Also went to see The Lost Colony Exhibit and they also had a very good movie on this item.

Room Tip: If you do not want a suite or corner suite, than stay on the pool side and look out at the ocean to...

While in Nags Head we stayed at the Surf Side Hotel. It's real convenient to msot attractions in Nags Head, Kill Devil Hills and Kitty Hawk. Rooms prices are reasonable. The hotel is very clean. Complimentry Continental breakfast was good, the pool looked nice and it has a workout facility. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Ocean Fronts are nice, but the ocean view was perfect for the price. Stay in the main building, 2nd...

This was our first stay (and definitely not our last) at this property. It came highly recommended by a family member and we are happy to say the advice was absolutely on the mark!

The property consists of two beachfront buildings with both indoor and outdoor pools. During the online reservation process you will notice a large selection of options and details to choose from which only enhances the fact that you really know what you are reserving. In addition, my online reservation was also confirmed by phone the next morning just to make sure I had reserved what we wanted. I seemly can not remember customer service like that and we had not even arrived yet.

Our room was large and spotless and all the others we passed by looked large as well. The staff was constantly helpful with whatever information we needed. The included breakfast was well above average.

Our stay was during a week in April when the weather was less then favorable, but the jacuzzi in our particular room made our week.

You will definitely see us again there soon!

We loved our stay at Surf Side. The room was spacious and clean. Loved our balcony with its oceanview - room on the north side - not directly on the beach, but able to see & hear the beach. Since I'm not a sun-lover, it was perfect. Breakfast was typical hotel fare. The light on our dresser burned out twice; fixed the first time, not the second :( There were other room lights, so we coped.

Room Tip: The first floor is actually up one level from the ground floor, so you do have a balcony.

We stayed for 3 nights and had a wonderful experience in a delightful King Loft. We had an ocean view room which meant from our balcony we could see the ocean and the sound. Great location and great room. Loved the wine and snacks each afternoon.The best, though, was the staff there. Everyone from the check in clerks, maintenance people, house keeping and breakfast room staff was extremely helpful and friendly. They made this a truly enjoyable stay. Will go there again and highly recommend it!

Was so pleased to see how very clean this oceanfront hotel was!!! I travel alone for work and felt completely safe on the premises. Those are my two top priorities!! I was not disappointed! Also, couldn't believe how BIG the room was. Would definitely stay at Surf Side again.
